The 20 Best-Directed TV Comedy Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

11 July 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While dramatic television has seen a wave of directorial ingenuity over the last 17 years (see our list of the best-directed dramas for proof), 21st century TV will probably be remembered more for the growth of vision in the comedy genre.

Whether it’s Louis C.K.’s grounded realism or the rapid-fire curveballs of Armando Iannucci and Mitch Hurwitz, the showrunner as auteur has become the lynchpin of what makes 21st century TV comedy so »

3.1 Eye Of The Beholder & 3.2 The New Frontier

Fear The Walking Dead is a show that will soon be undergoing a change in leadership. Unlike the parent show, Dave Erickson (who wrote the first episode of the season) has been at the helm for the first three seasons, with this one being his final as the runner of the show. Unlike The Walking Dead, Fear has been relatively sedate on the back end, and that might be a negative thing for it. Fear The Walking Dead seems to be hitting a lot of the same beats year after year, and the beginning of this season seems no different.
